Taxonomic status: currently recognized as a distinct genus.
Most recent taxonomic treatment adopted: Schneider, C.W. & Wynne, M.J. (2007). A synoptic review of the classification of red algal genera a half a century after Kylin's "Die Gattungen der Rhodophyceen". Botanica Marina 50: 197-249.
Monotypic when first introduced. Named in honour of Antoine Joseph Jean Solier (1792%u20131851), French phycologist. - (23 Jan 2017) - M.D. Guiry
Description: Thallus erect, irregularly radially branched, with terete or slightly compressed branches that are basally constricted. Structure multiaxial, each axial cell producing a single periaxial cell; medulla loosely filamentous; cortex pseudoparenchymatous. Carpogonial branches 3- or 4-celled, inwardly directed with a reflexed trichogyne; zygote producing a non-septate connecting filament. Auxiliary cell an inner cortical cell, after diploidisation producing an inward gonimoblast initial and eventually a fusion cell with radial gonimoblasts and terminal carposporangia. Cystocarps immersed but causing a swelling of the bearing branch, ostiolate, with enveloping tissue. Life history triphasic, with isomorphic gametophytes and tetrasporophytes [after Womersley (1994)].

Numbers of names and species: There are 16 species names in the database at present, as well as 2 infraspecific names. Of the species names, 10 have been flagged as accepted taxonomically on the basis of the listed literature under the species name. In some instances, opinions on taxonomic validity differ from author to author and users are encouraged to form their own opinion. AlgaeBase is a work in progress and should not be regarded as a definitive source only as a guide to the literature..
Names: ('C' indicates a name that is accepted taxonomically; 'S' a homotypic or heterotypic synonym; 'U' indicates a name of uncertain taxonomic status, but which has been subjected to some verification nomenclaturally; 'P' indicates a preliminary AlgaeBase entry that has not been subjected to any kind of verification.

Verification of data
Users are responsible for verifying the accuracy of information before use, as noted on the website Content page.
Some of the descriptions included in AlgaeBase were originally from the unpublished Encyclopedia of Algal Genera, organised in the 1990s by Dr Bruce Parker on behalf of the Phycological Society of America (PSA) and intended to be published in CD format. These AlgaeBase descriptions are now being continually updated, and each current contributor is identified above. The PSA and AlgaeBase warmly acknowledge the generosity of all past and present contributors and particularly the work of Dr Parker.
Descriptions of chrysophyte genera were subsequently published in J. Kristiansen & H.R. Preisig (eds.). 2001. Encyclopedia of Chrysophyte Genera. Bibliotheca Phycologica 110: 1-260.
